What’s this webinar about?
The health and care system in England is responsible for an estimated 4 – 5 per cent of the country’s carbon footprint – so has a major role to play in supporting the net zero target. The NHS has therefore committed to reaching net zero as soon as possible.
As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week, this webinar will explore several areas critical to carbon reduction in healthcare. Presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion and Q&A.

Anyone in the healthcare sector, including NHS services and the life science industry supply chain
